Stormont's Transfer Window
It's the deadline day for football transfers. The rest of the world might be focussing on whether the Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty will move to Blackpool, but at Stormont speculation is rife as to whether broadcaster Eamonn Mallie will make it into the media team due to play MLAs on Thursday 9th September. At the time of writing the Assembly has some of its potential line up pictured on its home page, but the media team has breen shrouded in mystery. However my scouts tell me that the silky skills of the Belfast Telegraph's David Gordon, the BBC's Mark Simpson, PA's David Young, Cool FM's Pete Snodden, the News Letter's Darwin Templeton and the Mirror's Gerry Millar may be on display. The event is intended to mark the opening of the Civil Service Sports Associations's new all weather pitches. But will the politicians play together as a team better than they work together as a coalition? And will ref May McFettridge blow the whistle on any foul play?
